Celebrity Charity Game to be held at Prenton Park

14 October 2018

Tranmere Rovers are hosting a Celebrity Charity Football Match on Sunday 21st October, 3pm kick-off to raise funds for two important charities. 

Reality TV stars including The Only Way is Essex's James Argent and 2018 Love Island participant Frankie Foster will be gracing the Prenton Park pitch, with all moneys raised being donated to Tranmere Rovers In The Community and James Bulger Memorial Trust.

Alongside Argent and Foster, other household names lacing up their boosts will be EastEnders duo Dean Gafney and Jake Wood, GeordieShore's Sam Gowland, TV personality Calum Best and many more. Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans will also be in attendance, taking his seat in the dugout as a manager for one of the celebrity team's.

The game will be played in a friendly and competitive way but with real importance as all funds raised will go towards two charitable organisations who work tirelessly within the local community each and every day. This year marks 25 years since James sadly passed away, and in his memory, his mother Denise decided to launch a charity to benefit and support young people who are disadvantaged by reason of having become a part of bereavement, a victim of crime, hatred or bullying.

Meanwhile, Tranmere Rovers In The Community works with thousands of people each year, with the four core themes of their work being in health, education, social inclusion and sports participation.

Tickets for the game are now on sale, with the prices just £10 for adults and £5 for children, with all seating based in the Main Stand. Once the Main Stand has sold out, tickets will be available to purchase in the Essar Kop for all spectators.

For all those who wish to watch the game in the luxury of hospitality at PrentonPark, you can do so for just £25 for adults and £15 for children. The hospitality package includes access to the popular Gold Lounge, a delicious hot meal, the chance to purchase drinks from the bar and the opportunity to meet the players for autographs after the game has finished.

To purchase tickets, please either visit the ticket office, located at PrentonPark, or call 03330 144452 and select option 1/2. Alternatively, you can purchase tickets online at www.trfctickets.co.uk.
